Great resort overall

Beach was beautiful and not commercialized, which was great! The pool was big, clean and inviting. The activity staff, waitresses and bartenders were wonderful, funny, and accommodating. My biggest let-down for the trip was that we wanted to use a coupon for a free excursion for horse-back riding, advertised as offered by the hotel, but we were not permitted to use it. The excursion director said it was only for customers who booked on another vacation website. However, nothing stated in the terms and conditions on the coupon indicated this. The only "exclusions" were if it were outside of the dates listed (the coupon indicated this was being offered the entire month of June). They were adamant in not honoring the coupon, and insisted it was my misunderstanding, not theirs, even though I found the coupon on their website! The food was okay. The restaurant food was much better than the buffet. But the drinks were great! The activities offered were good, but somewhat redundant. However, all and all a great place to relax and enjoy the untainted, peaceful, beachy atmosphere!

Late April 2016 - Viva Wyndham V Samana

Spent 5 nights at Viva Wyndham V Samana the last week of April 2016. In short, my wife and I just weren't impressed or wowed. We regularly compared our stay to another resort we had been to and that said a lot right there. Room: we got the Vibe room with the dipping pool. We liked it. Clean and spacious enough. No where comfortable to sit other than the bed. But there A/C controls were broken. It was either an ice box or it was off. All the rooms are closer to dining areas than they are to the beach. Pictures imply otherwise. When sitting on the patio, it always felt a little exposed and not private at all. Beach - beautiful. Best part of the place. pools were fine, but we were there for the beach. Dining.. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason when restaurants were open or closed. The best place the Mar y Fuego, was closed out right the first night and closed for a special event twice during the week. May not have been upsetting had there been any notice of this from anyone when we arrived. Fusion was fine. Possibly the second best... the Mediterranean place, just avoid it. Not worth it. The buffet was also not worth it considering Fusion and Fuego are included. The buffet wasn't bad, just nothing special. Excursions and things.. Maybe cause they just opened and they haven't set up all possible excursion offerings, but there were like a total of 5 things they offered to help set up. Sail boats.. they dont' let you take out a hobie by yourself. A sports guy sails and you're just passengers... disappointing. Staff... friendly, but not very helpful. I don't think, at an all inclusive, tipping should be needed for average service. But those that were tipping definitely got attention while those that weren't' were ignored. We gave up on their house wine as soon as we found out there was a wine list to choose from. Yeah, we paid extra, but what ever grape juice they served was horrible enough to have us splurge on real wine. Gotta ask for the list though! gotta ask! So.. our stay was nothing special... Food was OK and the best food was closed half the time. Beach was beautiful, best part of the place... Staff friendly but not helpful... rooms nice, but too near crowds and little privacy.

What's to Love

Adults-only at this hip & modern resort - no kids clubs, no screaming babies, no kids messing up the pool - you get the idea.

You'll be pampered with waiter service at the pool and the beach.

Yoga & Pilates classes help you re-focus and get back to that zen-like presence - and you'll burning a few calories before hitting the party at the pool.

In the VIBE Rooms you get a pretty swank set up with your own private plunge pool, ground floor entry (no steps to stumble up) and stellar ocean views - that's what you're here for, right?

Posh decor that's simple and elegant (and brand new!)

Cooking classes that are way more fun when on vacation - create your own sushi roll or your favorite Caribbean cocktail - hey, you get to be as creative as you want here!

 

What We'd Change

You won't find golf at the resort, but the resort does have a tennis court, a fitness center and plenty to do in and around the resort.

 

Why You Should Go

Located in the North East in the town Las Terrenas, a hidden treasure that is still somewhat undiscovered - you're about to explore a diamond in the rough.

24-hour room service really comes in handy, especially when it's 1am and you're jonesin' for a snack.

Free Wi-Fi keeps all you tech-savvy people in the loop - you can Instagram all day long - #cheapcaribbean, #partytime, #thisDJrocks

The on-site excursion desk will help you plan day trips - swimming beneath El Limon waterfall, the best places to shop in Las Terrenas, or where to find a true Samana specialty, Pescado de Coco (fish in coconut sauce) and you'll want to get out and see this beach town in action.

Set your sights on spending time exploring the ocean, either on paddleboard, kayak or snorkeling through the blue waters.

Hotel Description

Viva Wyndham V Samana: Brand New All-Inclusive in Hip Las Terrenas Samana

You're the traveler that's looking for an experience - that road less traveled. A retreat where your co-workers might even be a little envious (please, bragging is perfectly acceptable - you worked hard for this!) The stylish elegance you'll discover at Viva Wyndham V Samana will make others a wee bit jealous, but it's going to make you one happy vacationer. Plus, nestled into Dominican's still hidden gem, Las Terrenas - once a small fishing village, now as cosmopolitan as any major city, but with tons of charm. Check out the shopping, especially the local markets (make sure to take home an authentic Samana souvenir), the fun cafes and bars and the growing nightlife - there's so much to discover along these stunning ocean shores.



DINING

In keeping the vibe modern, hip and authentic, the "living wall" you'll find in the lobby is filled with fresh vegetables and herbs used in the restaurants at the resort - talk about fresh! And, you'll have unlimited access to all the restaurants - you can eat as much as you want (hey, order two of everything!). You'll be happy to know - no reservations are required! Of course, one of the best places to sample the savory cuisine is at the oceanfront beach bar where you'll find a variety of snacks, including pizza from the brick oven (all with a killer view!)
